Wouldn’t it be better/easier if you didn’t have to worry about separate volume settings for the speaker and the device? There is also no way to know what the current volume setting is, other than going all the way up at which point the boom produces a disturbingly loud tone to indicate that it has reached its limit (I don’t like this). I’ve also had some problems with paring multiple devices – one device takes over and the other one won’t play even though it is connected, and there is no way to override except to turn bluetooth off on the first device, which is pretty irritating. Those are basically the only two issues I have; hopefully they can be fixed with a future firmware update (though I’m not holding my breath – they will probably just release a new product and make you buy that instead). I agree that the sound is good (for the size); it would be nice if there was more base, but given the size I guess you can’t expect too much.

I like the review.

gig pack and use when I need music to listen to. The range is great on that
little guy. Very powerful and things like vocals and instruments sound really
nice. A lot like a more expensive Sonos speaker. I originally had read about it
on Poc’s Tech Blog (source:
http://pocinc.net/blog/product-reviews/review-logitech-ue-boom-wireless-bluetooth-speaker
), which is what led me to give it a try. Now that I am looking at their site,
it looks like they also featured it in their Xmas (“holiday”) gift
guide. I say, if you want something portable that is both loud enough for a
large room but also warm enough to enjoy the nicer genres of music, give the
Boom a chance. You will be surprised what it can accomplish with its size.

The mention removing and disposal of the battery & PRODUCT. Meaning they do not talk about replacing the battery. The instructions even talk about ungluing the housing to get to the battery.

Li-ion 18650. I just bought a new UE and the instructions (at least the newest batch) explain battery replacement.

By purchasing the UE Boom, you’re essentially leasing speaker for approximately two years. The life of this product dies with the battery. All rechargeable batteries have a limited charge cycle and its ability to charge decreases over time. I have confirmed with logitech, they have no intention of replacing the battery. This already a luxury accessory… and for most it’s difficult to come to terms with spending $200 on a bluetooth speaker. Now factoring buying one every 2 years or so. I’d gladly shave off a few hours of playback for a user replaceable battery. I wouldn’t even mind paying Logitech a fee to replace the battery after the warranty expires. Who wants a $200 brick?

All Logitech can offer is “the product has a two year warranty”. I’d will suggest for those that bought it (Got Suckered) taking it back with the ‘expired’ lithium battery a week before that two years is up. This is appalling. Knowing this, I will now never buy a Logitech item ever.
